Does your tires hit the bumper or does it stick out far enough?  Looks good.  Good to see some other Craftsman's in the forums and not just a bunch of Murrays. (this from someone with 2 Murray's

Wow, that diff slips bad, even with mud lites.  Doc's Fugazi has mud lights and a locked diff and he hasn't broken anything, you might be able to figure something out.

well the front end is locked so once i flex it up a bit with suspension i will stop getting hung up.

Doc also has an 820 in his. those are much more durable

Nice romp videos with a variety of terrain and your shepard is your rompin' buddy, so cool. It makes total sense that since you have a rigid front end, once you go on uneven terrian you only have 2 or 3 tires making good contact with the ground so you're going to be spinning one of the rear wheel a lot. Knowing you I'm sure that you have some cool suspension plans in the works to fix that.

Yup i am planning a good suspension , it will be similar to the murray but even more beefy.

Took it out for a romp the other day, rode for 30 min, spent an hour getting it out.Also built a heavy duty bumper so now i can lift the rear end out easier . The rack is just mocked up cause i cant decide if i want to rack it or not. Whadda yall think about putting a rack on it ?1993 Craftsman LT4000 heavy mud build. - Page 3 Img_2127

Rack looks kinda cool. Like the rear bumper too, simple but effective. That's the thing I don't like about mudding is it can be more work to get it out than it's worth. I've only been that stuck a couple of times, but it's no fun at all. That's why I stick to crawling and stuff a little bit more than hitting the mud.

I really like the way the rear rack looks, but it looks like it would make it pretty hard to get to the gas tank.

That looks really neat! Did you film it? (I really enjoy romp vids.)

i didn't even try filming it because i hitting the mud hard and everything was covered , so i would have been filming a dirty camera lens the whole time. I got it stuck, then moved it a couple feet , then stuck again,. I repeated that for an hour so the footage wouldn't be the greatest anyway

The rack would need to be out a little farther or i could chop some rack out and weld it back in but over out of the way . Then the gas tank cap would have good access i think, i really would love some storage on it but i kinda like it with and without the rack

When you put the rack on it looks more like an atv and not a tractor so I hear you Biggas.

i might just put a removable cargo box on the rear bumper , then it can still look like a mower.

Well I like the look of a wheeler, so I think that NellyBelle is gonna get a rack. Especially with the way it's set up, there is no storage what so ever.

Yeah it does, and I like some tractors that look like tractors, the Craftsman GTs look good as tractors. But they make good atv style things too.
